Estimation of the tropospheric and stratospheric CO2 content by ground-based IR technique

Published: 05 July 2021; https://doi.org/10.1134/S0001433821020110 Measured solar spectra of high spectral resolution possess specific information about the vertical distribution of some atmospheric gases. The assessment of the spectra informational value is provided by determining a degree of freedom for signal (dofs). This can be obtained from the solar spectra. Such information can be used to … Continue reading Estimation of the tropospheric and stratospheric CO2 content by ground-based IR technique
